Welcome to this week’s Doctor Who’s Day roundup, a cosmic gathering of various Whovian stuff and nonsense from the past week on the web. And as yesterday was Halloween, that means a fair amount of dressing up.

But before we get into that (and we will), how about we start with something nice and creepy? Here’s the latest addition to GeorgeCMusic’s short run of YouTube music clips, imagining what it would be like if the Doctor Who theme were arranged by some of the giants of electronica, such as Vangelis, or Jean Michelle Jarre. His latest asks the question, what if John Carpenter had had a go at the iconic Who theme for one of his early ’80s horror movies, such as Halloween or The Fog? Wonder no more:

And now, let’s take a look at some of the many tributes to Doctor Who from fans in the name of Halloween (or rather, Wholloween), starting with this very Tim Burton crossover:

• How beautiful is this Radio Times cover?

• Or this fan-made poster for a particularly sweet Seventh Doctor adventure:

• Speaking of covers…

• And here’s a lovely extra twist to the tale:

Warning: it’s an hour long:
